” DJ Quest 2018 “
It’s always a nice surprise to see innovative DJ’s from 90’s still wrecking shop in this era…For instance, on this 20 minute clip DJ QUEST (Bulletproof Scratch Hamsters / Space Travelers ) hits the decks with a barrage of doubles, scratches, blends and that special Bay area flavor that will perk your ears up..
Peace to GG-

Presently, Quest is sharing his knowledge with his Quest School of DJ Arts, in collaboration with The DJ Project, a non-profit community based- organization which offers arts entrepreneurship programs that use music to engage young adults with a range of industry related subjects from DJing to audio and event production. In 2012, Quest wrote ‘The Beginner’s DJ Guide’. A hand book created for new enthusiast of the artform as an introduction to the fundamentals and roots and awareness of the true art-form of DJing among the general public.
In recent years, Quest has been dialing-in his composing skills and continues to record ‘scratch’ music. Some of his recent titles include “Scratch Breaks” 1 & 2, “Scratch 101”, “BreakFast Breaks”. Plus two full length albums”Questolous” and “Cosmic Parasite”, and a megamix containing classic and obscure electro “Elektro Flexx”.
